Product Research


Overview: The QSC MP-M40 is an 8 channel input, 6 channel output music and paging mixer designed for retail and hospitality applications, as well as live entertainment, presentations, and conferences. It features extensive DSP and configuration possibilities, all accessed from easy to use apps, while housed in a compact, 1U, rack-mountable chassis. Configuration and setup are all done through the MP Install app, available for both iOS and Android tablets, as well as Windows and Mac OS computers. Operation and control can be accessed by up to 8 compatible smartphones or tablets (iOS & Android) running the MP Manage app.

Rear Panel:

  • Audio Inputs: The MP-M40 features 2 types of inputs for audio and microphone signals:
    • Mic/Line: Two 6-pin Euroblock (Phoenix) connectors are used for inputting either Mic- or Line-level balanced signals into the mixer. Each of these can also provide 12V of phantom power for condenser microphones, if necessary. The MP-M40 includes a "ducking" feature that when activated can temporarily mute other source signals when a page is made with a microphone (not included).
    • RCA: Four pairs of unbalanced RCA inputs can be used for inputting consumer audio device signals such as CD and media players. Each pair of inputs is summed to a mono signal.
  • Audio Outputs: Four line-level outputs are provided on two 6-pin Euroblock connectors for running the mixer's output signals to outboard amplifiers (sold separately). Two 15" jumper plugs, with 6-pin Euroblock connectors on both ends, are provided for a quick and easy connection to a QSC amplifier such as the MP-A40V or MP-A80V (both sold separately).
  • Music On Hold (MoH): This dedicated transformer-balanced, 3-pin Euroblock connector can be used to output music from one of the input sources to a connected telephone system. The audio signal sent out from the MoH port has its bandwidth limited to avoid any low-frequency distortion when fed into the telephone system.
  • GPI 1&2: Two General Purpose Inputs are provided on a single 4-pin Euroblock connector. These can be used with an optional hardware switch (not included) for recalling Scenes. GPI Open recalls the Scene associated with the switch being in the open state, while another Scene can be associated with the switch in the GPI Closed state.
  • MFC (Multi-Function Controller): Two RJ-45 ports are provided for connecting a QSC Multi-Function Controller such as the MP-MFC Wall Controller (sold separately). MFCs are wall-mount controls that can be placed in the area or zone that it will control and provide the Source Name, Source Selection, Volume Level indication as well as Volume +/- controls. MFCs can also be used to change Scenes on the mixer. Two MFC ports are provided, each allowing up to 4 controllers to be daisy-chained to it, for a total of up to 8 MFCs.
  • Ethernet: An RJ-45 port is provided for connection to your LAN (Local Area Network).
  • USB: A type-A, 2.0 USB port can be used for firmware updates, configuration uploads, MP3 music playback (44.1kHz sample rate only), or can be used in conjunction with a USB WiFi adapter (sold separately) for a wireless connection.

Front Panel: The MP-M40's front panel includes the following:

  • USB Port: This type-A, 2.0 USB port can be used for firmware updates, configuration uploads, MP3 music playback (44.1kHz sample rate only), or can be used in conjunction with a USB WiFi adapter (sold separately) for wireless control.
  • Headphone Cue: A 3.5mm headphone jack can be used to monitor input and output sources.
  • LEDs:
    • Status: Lights solid while mixer is booting up and goes off when unit is on and functioning properly. The Status LED will blink at a slow continual rate while the mixer is doing a firmware update. A blinking SOS pattern indicates the firmware update failed.
  • Power: On/Off
MP Install App

Output Zones: The MP-M40's Output configuration is very similar to the Input configuration screen. A Home screen shows "at-a-glance" all of the Output zones, their Source, and block icons for each configuration option. A Setup icon for each Output Zone will display a row of icons at the top of the screen with the following selections:

  • Output Overview: The Output Overview provides a view of channel settings and most of the controls that are present on other processing blocks, letting you quickly make changes to parameters.
  • Output Sources: The Sources screen is where any available Sources can be assigned to an Output. A Sources priority can be selected as Primary or Secondary, which determines how they will affect signals on other Outputs. Each output zone includes two duckers that can be triggered by Priority inputs, for example a microphone input for paging can "duck" music outputs during an announcement. Output Source settings include the following:
    • Primary/Secondary: This switch selects either the Primary source selection and setup, or the Secondary source selection and setup. Signals at the Primary input will reduce the level of Secondary Source and Selectable Source audio. Signals arriving at the Secondary input will reduce the level of the Selectable Source's audio, but won't affect the Primary Source input.
    • Source Select: Displays a drop-down menu list of available sources for the Priority Input.
    • Source Level: Sets the volume level for the Primary or Secondary signals relative to the other zone inputs.
    • Override Zone Level: When engaged, this keeps the Primary Source from being affected by the output's master level control, allowing a page message to be heard at a pre-set volume no matter what the zone's level is.
    • Level: The level of each source can be adjusted relative to other sources.
  • Output Presets: The MP-M40 comes loaded with a multitude of pre-programmed QSC loudspeaker tuning Presets, designed for specific models of speakers. Presets can be modified and stored as User Presets, which include Filter, PEQ, and Output Channel settings. A Recall Omit setting allows specific parameters to be exempt from changing when a Preset is changed. Parameters that can be omitted include: Levels and Sources, Speaker Tuning, and Processing Blocks (GEQ, HPF/LPF, etc.). Factory Presets are categorized by the Series of QSC loudspeaker and the Type of loudspeaker. User Preset storage locations include App Storage, MP-M Internal, and USB External. The Preset screen also includes tools for creating custom speaker Presets. Parameters include:
    • RTA (Real-Time Analyzer): Displays the amplitude of the channel signal in 1/3 octave bands with peak hold indicators. The analyzer's frequency scale runs from 31.5Hz to 16kHz and can indicate levels from -60dB to -5dB.
    • Parametric EQ: Six frequency bands that can range from 20Hz to 20kHz with -15dB to +15dB of adjustment, along with Q adjustment. Bands 1 and 6 can configured as High and Low Shelves.
    • HPF/LPF: A High-Pass Filter with a cutoff ranging from 20Hz to 2000Hz, and a Low-Pass Filter with a range of 1kHz to 20kHz.
  • Output Graphic EQ (GEQ): A 28-band 1/3 octave graphic equalizer is available for each output channel, along with an RTA for a representation of the audio signal. Each frequency band includes an on-screen slider with a range of +15dB to -15dB.
  • Output Anti-Feedback: For applications where microphones will be used for live sound reinforcement, the MP-M40 includes 12 narrow-band, anti-feedback filters for each output. The filters are useful for eliminating feedback frequencies while having very little effect on overall tonal balance. In most feedback situations, only 4-6 filters will be required. The Anti-Feedback system will automatically identify and display the suspected feedback frequencies in real time. The filter can be adjusted manually or automatically using the "Feedback Wizard".
  • Output Loudness: Based on the Constant Loudness Contours that describe how the human ear perceives tonal balance, the Loudness function works with the output Zone Level control to maintain a constant tonal balance. A graphic representation displays the different Loudness Contours from low to high volumes. Parameters include the level at which a Loudness Contour will be applied (Threshold) and the amount of Loudness Contour applied.
  • Output Limiter: This parameter prevents the output audio level from exceeding a preset threshold. A graphic display provides a visual representation of how much the signal level is being reduced by the Limiter. Adjustable parameters include:
    • Input & Output Meters: Provide a visual representation of the signal level before and after limiting.
    • Limiter Contour: Settings for the Threshold, Attack Time, Ratio, and Release Time.

Mixer: The QSC MP-M40 includes a built-in "virtual" mixer with Auto-Mix capability and an FX engine, allowing it to be used for meetings, conferences, or live entertainment applications. All of the MP-M40's Input Channels are available as a source to the mixer, and the mixer's stereo output can be used as an audio source for any of the MP-M40's Output Channels. Eight on-screen channel strips provide controls for:

  • Inputs: Lets you select the input source. Choices include: Inputs 1-4 (Mic/Line), Inputs 5-8 (RCA), USB Player, and an FX Channel.
  • Main: Gives access to the Mixer's main channel 6-band PEQ and RTA screens. The RTA provides a real time visualization of the audio signal. The PEQ includes six frequency bands that can range from 20Hz to 20kHz with -15dB to +15dB of adjustment, along with Q adjustment. Bands 1 and 6 can configured as High and Low Shelves.
  • Cue: Routes the Input Channel's signal to the Cue (headphone) output.
  • Pan: Places the signal in the stereo field.
  • Levels/Level Meters: Virtual faders and level meters for adjusting each channel's signal level (pre-fader).
  • Main Level/Main Output: A virtual fader and level meter is used to adjust the output level from the Mixer (post-fader).
  • Mute
  • Auto-Mix: This engages the automatic microphone mixer. This feature compares the signals from the input channels and applies level reduction (attenuation) where necessary. The Auto-Mixer senses which channels active and applies gain to those, while reducing gain on inactive channels.
  • Mixer FX: The Mixer features an effects (FX) processor that can be applied to each Mixer input channel. The Effects Level can be varied from channel to channel, but all other Effects parameters are applied equally to all channels. Input and Output Level Meters display signal levels, while the Effect Controls provide adjustment parameters pertaining to that Effect. Available Effects include:
    • Mono Delay
    • Stereo Delay
    • Chorus
    • Pitch Shift
    • Dense Reverb
    • Lush Reverb
    • None
    • Cancel
  • Mixer Presets: The MP-M40 includes factory presets for each of the available Effects. Effects can be modified and saved to either the Internal memory or USB External memory.

Setup Wizard: Setting up a multi-source, multi-zone system can be a complex project with many tasks that need to be completed. The MP-M40 makes setup easier by providing a Setup Wizard. This provides a list, in work-flow sequence, of individual tasks that need to be accomplished. As tasks are completed, they can be checked off using the provided on-screen check-off buttons. Each task includes a link button for one-touch navigation to the pages where they will be executed.

Menu: The MP-M40's Menu screen provides access to all the various utility functions including:

  • Configurations: A Configuration is a design file that contains all mixer settings including presets, permissions, and scenes. A Configuration can be exported from one MP-M40 and loaded into another MP-M40. The second mixer becomes functionally and operationally identical to the first. Configurations can be saved and stored either in the internal memory or to a USB storage device.
  • Scenes: A Scene includes the values of all settings for input channels, output channels, and the mixer section. Level, source selection, and mixer settings can be edited, at the installer's discretion, using the MP Manage app (more to follow).
  • Scheduling: The Scheduling screen is used to set up a schedule for recalling scenes. Each scheduled recall is known as an Event, and can be done from the MP Manage app if enabled by the installer. The Scheduling feature is handy for automatically switching Scenes for daily, weekly, or monthly events such as for happy hour at a bar or restaurant which happens everyday at the same time.
  • Controllers: This screen is where you can manage any connected MFCs (Multi-Function Controllers). MFCs are wall-mount controllers that can be used for Source selection, Volume, and Scene selection from within that zone or area. Each controller listed can be named and includes an activation switch for that zone.
  • Smartphone: This screen lets you setup smartphone access profiles for controlling certain functions from wireless devices. Up to 8 smartphones can be listed along with which zone(s) they have control over and what functions can be accessed from that smartphone.
  • GPI: Two General Purpose Inputs are provided for recalling Scenes using a hardware switch (sold separately) connected to one of the rear-panel GPI inputs.
    • GPI 1/GPI 2 Open: Recalls the Scene associated with GPI 1 or 2 when open.
    • GPI 1/GPI 2 Closed: Recalls the Scene associated with GPI 1 or 2 when closed.
  • Report: The Report screen lets you enter information identifying the installation location, installer name, and facility contacts. The Report will be saved as an ASCII text file so that it can easily be copied and pasted into other documents.
  • System Test: The System Test screen is a setup and trouble-shooting tool used to send test signals to the MP-M40's outputs. Each of the 8 Zones can be individually selected along with the type of test signal: Pink Noise or Sine Wave. A level-meter displays the output level of the source while the corresponding Gain slider adjusts the level of the test signal. The System Test screen includes an RTA display, both pre-and post-EQ.
  • Network: When the MP-M40 is Ethernet connected to a wired network and has DHCP enabled, the mixer will automatically obtain an IP address. If not possible, it will auto-assign a link-local IP address. The MP-M40 can also be configured with a static IP address, if needed. A wireless setup can be configured if using an optional QSC WiFi dongle (sold separately).
  • Security: The Security Setup is used to change the Admin Passwords for the MP Install and MP Manage apps. Default passwords are already assigned, but should be changed to prevent unauthorized access.
  • Settings: The Settings menu lets you enable/disable USB playback from a USB storage device, set the Time, Date, and Time Zone. The Settings menu also lets you format a USB drive plugged into the unit as well as clear the Internal Storage.
MP Manage App
